On the left, we have our NYC contender Brooklyn Babydoll (30.7% Perfection!/ 12.5% So close/ 7.5% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 49.2% Who did this to you?) wearing a wearing a vintage Diane Von Furstenburg for Main Street jacket and a vintage dress and bag. Her shoes are from Forever 21, her tights are from Leg Avenue, and her glasses are from Girl Props. Her favorite store was Loves Saves the Day, but now that it's closed, she loves the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market.

On the right, we have our LA contender Melissa (21.9% Perfection!/ 20.3% So close/ 37.5% I feel strangely ambivalent about it/ 20.3% Who did this to you?) wearing a dress from Forever 21, shoes from H&M and a bag she borrowed from her sister.
